Man 'remorseless' over Vic rape, pregnancy

A man has shown no remorse for raping a young woman who was left pregnant by his violent attack, a Melbourne court has been told.

Rubin Hu, 30, met his victim online and assaulted her in his Notting Hill home last year.

She had only agreed to go there because she believed he was going to take her home early, the Victorian County Court heard on Thursday.

The young woman begged Hu not to assault her.

She also begged her rapist to use a condom, but he didn't.

Hu asked the woman when her last period was and then "made a risk decision that was ultimately faulty", his barrister said in the plea hearing.

"He thought the risk was lower, he was just wrong," Simon Moglia told the court.

Hu's victim later found out she had fallen pregnant and was traumatised by a subsequent termination.

"This will haunt me for the rest of my life," the woman said in a statement.

Hu spent about five months in immigration detention on Christmas Island after the incident, the court heard.

The Chinese national, who arrived in Australia in 2008, will likely be deported after he is eventually released from prison.

A jury found him guilty of two counts of rape in June.

"There's no evidence of remorse here," Crown prosecutor Diana Manova said.

Hu has no criminal history.

Judge Michael McInerney will sentence him in December.
